When you’re trying to make money online, whether it’s with affiliate marketing or any other method, then one of the biggest challenges you’ll face is actually loneliness. The problem with making money online is firstly that you are all by yourself with your computer and an internet connection, and without the input and help from other people, you can often end up wasting a lot of time and leading yourself down dead-end paths because you don’t have someone more experienced with you who can show you the right routes to success.
Whatever online industry you have chosen, and whichever niche you end up working with, this is probably the main thing that is going to slow down your progress, and we have seen many people who have actually given up on their projects purely because they don’t have enough guidance and direction to keep them motivated. This is very sad, as everyone can succeed online if they have the right guidance and enough perseverance to get through the difficulties.
So, the existence of any kind of program that allows you to personally partner and work with an experienced person in the industry would sound like a fantastic opportunity, right? Well today we’ll be looking at something that offers exactly that: Partner with Anthony.
Anthony Morrison is one of the famous figures in online marketing, and indeed we have reviewed his Success with Anthony program in the past.
In this program, Anthony is offering something quite different in that he is offering you the chance to actually form a partnership with him. Sounds too good to be true, right?
Anthony has been marketing this opportunity mostly by email, and it has certainly created a significant amount of hype and talk within the industry.
In this offer, Anthony claims to do most of the work for you, and that whenever he makes money, you will make money. For newcomers this is certainly appealing, as Anthony is a renowned expert in the field, so it’s a tempting prospect.
The way that this program works is actually quite simple. Firstly, it’s a training course on affiliate marketing, so it will teach you all the methods you need to know to be able to promote third party products in return for commissions on any sales that result from your efforts. And in this case, there’s a twist, because it will also teach you how to promote the program itself, and in essence this is the ‘partnership’ that will be created between you and Anthony Morrison.
Not only will you use this product as a training course to learn affiliate marketing skills, but you will also end up promoting this very same course to others in order to earn commissions on the resulting program sales.
The chain of referrals goes deeper than though. As with any affiliate marketing venture, you will need to subscribe to some tools that will help you to get the job done. This includes things like Clickfunnels for building sales letter pages and landing pages, and email autoresponder services like GetResponse, that allow you to run sophisticated email marketing campaigns to people who subscribe to your email lists.
So as well as referring people to Partner with Anthony itself, the program also instructs you to refer all of these tools as well. Almost all of the third party tools involved with affiliate marketing are subscription based, with monthly payments being taken from your account in return for continued services. So when you also refer these tools to other people, as the program tells you to, then you will receive recurring commissions on a monthly basis, which is very nice indeed!
Partner with Anthony appears to have a very low barrier to entry, in that you initially only have to pay $7 to gain access to the program. However, this is quite dishonest, as to get the whole ecosystem working, you’ll have to make several different purchases, which will be completely necessary if you actually want to have a functioning system.
The $7 is actually a recurring monthly fee, with a $97 one-time option also available, but again, do bear in mind that there are plenty of other costs involved, including those associated with the third party tools we mentioned before.
The course itself is drip-fed, which means that you can’t see all the modules at once. This is a very frustrating and dishonest way to deliver an educational course, especially because it’s so obvious that the material is not really being released live, it all exists already and it’s just being drip-fed to you to keep you coughing up your monthly payments to be able to carry on with it.
Because of this annoying drip-feed system, you can expect it to take at least 2 weeks to get through all the course material so that you’ll be able to start earning with the referral systems.
The course teaches you how to promote the program itself, and to simplify the process, essentially you will be creating a Clickfunnels landing page that will persuade your visitors to sign up to your email list, and then you will promote the course itself using an email series that you will design in an autoresponder sequence. There is nothing particularly revolutionary about this method of affiliate marketing, and you can learn this exact same method elsewhere without being focused 100% on promoting this exact product.
We feel that it’s better to learn the discipline of affiliate marketing in a more general sense rather than tailored to one specific product, which will make you a more versatile and able marketer in the long run. Partner with Anthony is too focused on promoting itself and not focused enough on teaching you a portable and useful skillset that you’ll be able to apply elsewhere.
Anthony also provides funnels which are already done for you, which sounds like it will make your life easy but in fact readymade funnels are not really a good idea. A lot of people have probably seen these funnels before, and because of that they’ll be much less likely to convert into customers. We think that this has a lot less value than Anthony likes to let on.
While this product is not actually a scam, we feel that its scope is quite limited. As an affiliate marketing course, we think that there are better options out there that will be able to teach you the skill in a much better and more comprehensive way, so that you can actually be able to build a career doing this, with a variety of different products and approaches under your belt.
As for the referral system itself, this is also not a scam but it does resemble a pyramid scheme and we don’t like the feel of that. The program itself is dishonest because the initial $7 is definitely not the only cost you’ll be dealing with, many more will follow.
All in all, we recommend that you avoid Partner with Anthony. There are better programs out there if you want to make money with affiliate marketing!
All the best,
